October has been an anxiety-inducing month for Grand Theft Auto sleuths online. The most hardcore members of the community were convinced an announcement was happening yesterday, but there’s still hope for the rest of the month and even beyond October if nothing happens before Halloween. The newly uploaded GTA 6 Metacritic page fuels hope a trailer reveal is imminent, and fingers crossed fans get the early Christmas present they so badly want.

Most GTA 6 popular theories pointed to a reveal on October 24th or October 26th. Obviously, we’ll very soon find out if both theories were a dud, but even then fans believe an announcement can come in November. Fans want overhauled police AI similar to Red Dead Redemption 2, and they also want to see more unique side activities and odd jobs. However, more than anything, fans just want a trailer and release date.

While no one is expecting the announcement of a release date, the sudden appearance of a Metacritic page has fans hoping that a trailer is quickly drifting around the corner.

GTA 6 Metacritic page fuels hope trailer reveal is coming

GTA 6 fans have noticed the emergence of the Grand Theft Auto VI Metacritic page online. This Metacritic page was reportedly uploaded on October 25th. The web page lists the game for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, and it also includes the following summary: ‘With development of the next entry in the Grand Theft Auto series well underway, the Rockstar Games team is determined to once again set creative benchmarks for the series, our industry, and for all entertainment, just as the label has done with every one of their frontline releases’.

Unfortunately, this doesn’t guarantee that an announcement is imminent. As many people have pointed out on X, formerly known as Twitter, Half Life 3 is still on Metacritic, yet that game is nowhere to be seen. On one hand Half Life 3 was in development but cancelled, meanwhile, on the other hand, Metacritic has a page for the wonderfully titled Granny Theft Auto Reloaded.

As for how a game page is uploaded to Metacritic, the website’s support page says ‘Metacritic shares a credits database with sister site GameFAQs,’ and that ‘additions and changes to GameFAQs will, in turn, be reflected on Metacritic’. Over on Reddit, discussions about the authenticity of the Metacritic page are split. Many claim that there needs to be a verification process, meanwhile, others claim you can just simply sign up to GameFAQs and input the relevant info meaning game name, genre, platforms, studio, etc.

Although the sudden emergence of the page is interesting, don’t hold your breath for a trailer coming today. It is possible as is an announcement before the upcoming Take-Two Interactive conference call with investors in November, but Rockstar Games hasn’t officially teased anything. The last we’ve officially heard about GTA 6 is Rockstar Games confirming its development following an unfair gameplay leak, and Take-Two Interactive saying it ‘needs to be something you’ve never seen before‘.
